WMP12 has stopped playing mpg's

Hi,

Media Player 12 suddenly stopped playing mpg files. Sound works but blank black screen. I cannot remember how this started. Any ideas out there why this may be?

Remove all the codec packs like K-Lite, etc. Then Follow Windows Media Player Troubleshooting Guide step 6 to 17 then install Shark Codec 007. Let see if that fixes it.

Uninstalled 'XVID mp4' and 'K-Lite' codecs.

Removed and reinstated WMP.

Installed the Shark codec and now the mpgs that didn't play have no sound either.

Wish I knew when this originally happened.

After installing the Shark007 codecs, you need to run the Settings Application once by rightclicking the shortcut and choosing 'Run as Administrator' to complete the codec installaton. If you are still having difficulty after doing this, try disabling the Microsoft Video decoder on the SWAP TAB.

Yayyy! Nice one Shark. I did also have to disable MS decoder as you suggested.

All works now. Thanks to all for your help once again.

Edit: Have rep'd you both

Playing FLAC in WMP12 - How to ensure correct version of Media Server?
I'm running Win 7 x64 with 32bit WMP12. I have FLAC showing with metadata and can play files locally.

WMC all of a sudden stopped playing movies
Very odd. I've been using WMC to play movies stored on a home server forever. Recently it stopped working. It will flash up the start of the movie for a split-second, then stop with no error that I can see. Windows media player does the same thing. What is odd is that I can remote into the...
